Sydney, Australia: Aussie Copts Prepare To Hold Prayer Virgil on Behalf of Those Killed and injured in the Recent Muslim Attack on St Peter's Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt

The vigil will take place tomorrow (Australian time), in the early evening of Tuesday 13th December.

I am posting the advance notice here just to make sure that Sydney-based Australian readers of "New English Review" know that this vigil is happening.  Please, if you live in or near Sydney and can make the time to attend this vigil, do so. This is an opportunity to stand up and be counted; to show solidarity with our suffering fellow Infidels (Coptic Christians, in this particular case).

The details here reproduced are as advertised by the Coptic Diocese of Sydney and Affiliated Regions.
